Polydioxanone (PDO) thread lifting
A non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedure that provides a subtle lifting and tightening effect to the skin is achieved by the insertion of a special thread called polydioxanone or PDO, which has properties that stimulate the synthesis of collagen and elastin.
During PDO thread lift, a needle that is pre-loaded with a PDO thread is inserted in the interstitial tissue at the subdermal level and the needle is finally pulled out with the PDO thread remained under the skin.
Different PDO thread designs are used for treating various facial problems. For example, dual-thread, 360 degrees, 4-dimensional cog design is for the uplifting of the cheeks; dual-thread multi-directional cog design can be used for nose re-shaping; nanotech cannulas are specially designed for treating the skin around the delicate eye areas; memorable coiled design increases volume between skin tissues to target Indian folds, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines.
